Reality dating shows to watch if you're sian, single and sexual

Lonely AF

Text: Aravin Sandran


Naked Attraction

What's the cheesy tagline of the show?
"A daring dating series that starts where some good dates might end  naked."

What is our first impression?
The show does a pretty good job with diversity, offering up a buffet of flesh featuring faces and bodies of all shapes, sizes, skin types, sexual identity, race, and even level of hairiness. Basically, there's something for everyone no matter which side you swing, what your preferences are or what kind of relationship you're searching for. Just a fair warning: there are so many full-frontal, bare naked bodies on view in one episode, enough to outnumber one of your Pornhub sessions.

Who should watch this?
Size queens and kings who prefer a larger organ than a larger brain.

How is the Internet reacting?
"I got only one question, how's that even possible on YouTube?"

Dating Naked

What's the cheesy tagline of the show?
"Dating Naked explores romance sans preconceptions, stereotypes  and clothes."

What is our first impression?
All the dating action takes place on a remote Carribean island where a primary dater meets two new hopefuls each week. They go on 1-on-1 dates, which involve them getting into extremely awkward and revealing body postures. Imagine being completely butt-naked while doing aerial yoga or repeatedly leaping and diving during a volleyball game. At the end of the day, they go back to a kampung-looking resort with a free-flow bar. Cue the tears and the girl-on-girl drama.

Who should watch this?
Sporty nudists who enjoy letting it all hang out in the sun.

How is the Internet reacting?
"These people will have to go to job interviews in the future. Imagine how that will go."

90 Day Fiancé

What's the cheesy tagline of the show?
"Getting through customs is just the beginning."

What is our first impression?
We're are no strangers to mail-order brides in Asia, but this show takes it to a whole new global level. There are handsome Middle Eastern men from Morocco, gold-digging Ukrainian beauties and slick-smooth Carribean dudes. They've got to tie the knot in 90 days upon arrival and meeting their bae so obviously, there's plenty to catch up with: the nosy as hell mother-in-law, an out of wedlock kid or even a bucket load of cash to enjoy all of a sudden. This is drama with a capital 'D'.

Who should watch this?
Those who have exhausted all options, given up on life and ready to whip out their wallet to buy a partner on Amazon.

How is the Internet reacting?
"How to get Green Card show."

First Dates

What's the cheesy tagline of the show?
"You only get one chance to make a first impression. And these couples are sharing it with the world."

What is our first impression?
Imagine if a camera followed your single friends and family on every date that they went on and you'll get First Dates, a compendium all of the cringey, adorable, laugh-out-loud, tear-jerking and eye-rolling experiences that they've ever narrated to you. 

Who should watch this?
Thirsty dudes and girls who are well-versed with sliding into the DMs on IG, swiping left on Tinder and have "It's Complicated" as their relationship status on FB.

How is the Internet reacting?
"I want a woman that can live without saying "like" in every sentence."

If You Are The One

What's the cheesy tagline of the show?
None.

What is our first impression?
Imagine the 24-hour home shopping network QVC had a lovechild with gameshow Deal or No Deal. A well-natured man presents himself to a gang of women through a series of short videos that offer a behind-the-scenes look at his life. The women are addressed only by the numbers on her microphone, but holy shit, they give no two shits about faking it to make it as the final chosen one. This show is as real as it can get in Asia: modern-day feminism, Internet-born digital millennials and no-filter criticism that puts Western reality dating shows to shame for their scripted, misogynistic programming.

Who should watch this?
Chinese women or those fluent in Mandarin and between the ages of 20 and 45. Apply here.

How is the Internet reacting?
"Man, this show is savage."
